Troy Ave and Keeping It Real Going Wrong

Troy Ave is a rapper that I always wanted to win. Although he was never the greatest rapper, I always enjoyed his take on things. Plus, his “Bricks In My Backpack” series of mixtapes held it down when I thirsted for a hardcore East Coast approach to music. I still felt like Troy should […]

Batman v Superman and DC Inferiority

Batman v Superman was a greatly made mediocre film.

Yes, you read that correctly.

Batman v Superman was not everything it was cracked up to be. No, I won’t call it great like all the other people that was amazed at the sequencing and superhero scenarios. Also, I would be remiss to actually call it terrible […]

Hypermasculinity is a psychological term for the exaggeration of male stereotypical behavior, such as an emphasis on physical strength, aggression, and sexuality [1]. Being that one of the first studies was done in 1984, thanks to Donald L. Mosher and Mark Sirkin, it is a “fairly new” concept. Still, it is well defined by […]

Amber Rose is Right: Women Own Their Bodies

Say what you want about Amber Rose, but she has found a way to keep her name in the media. If she isn’t breaking-up-to-make-up with Wiz Khalifa, she is shutting down Kanye West on Twitter. If she isn’t deflecting the slut shaming that comes her way, then she is having a city wide slut […]
